DEFINITION: Stealth viruses

A stealth virus uses various mechanisms to avoid detection by antivirus software. Generally, stealth describes any approach to doing something while avoiding notice. These viruses conceal any increase in the size of an infected file or changes to the file’s date and time of last modification.

DEFINITIONS: Worms

Worms differ from viruses in that they do not attach to a host file, but are self-contained programs that propagate across networks and computers. Worms are commonly spread through email attachments; opening the attachment activates the worm program.
